Location Information

Baan Tha Khan Thong Homestay


In 2007, many people throughout Thailand became interested in studying sufficiency economy agriculture in Tambon Baan Saew, which won the best award of agricultural technology service and knowledge transfer for Northern region. Groups of visitors had experienced a good natural atmosphere and the kindness of the local people, so they requested to stay in the area. Consequently, the president of the Tambon Administrative Office, Mr. Somkuan Utawong, the administrative assistant, Mr. Sethasak Phromma, and the coordinator, Mrs. Samneang Intharaphromma, had assigned Baan Tha Khan Thong village to be a model of Chiang Rai cultural landscape program. The village initiated a homestay program following the guidance of the president of the Tambon Administration office and taking care of every visitor as their family. The first volunteer group started with 10 houses for 50 visitors. Later on the village became more famous and the numbers increased to 24 houses for 100 visitors.
In 2009, the dean of the faculty of Management Sciences of Chiang Rai Rajabhat University, Assoc. Prof. Chuklin Onvijit, and his team provided support and advice on the homestay program. They provided training for homestay hosts, cooking programs for visitors, local tour guides, as well as advice on proper performance. The villagers then set up a village homestay committee and voted for Mr. Sathein Boonpok as the head of the homestay group. This would lead Baan Khan Thong homestay to the highest of Thai standards.
